About the tour
MINI TREKKING TO MONTE ARTXANDA - ENJOY THE VIEWS AND NATURE WITHOUT LEAVING BILBAO.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE TOUR
The Basques love the mountains. For many there is no better plan than to put on their boots and walk up. With family, friends or alone. Bilbao and Euskadi do not understand each other without its mountains, its peaks and its valleys. With an abrupt and rugged nature like few others, its people and its cities have known how to adapt to it and have learned to enjoy and respect it. To understand Bilbao well you have to see it from above. We accompany you on foot to the top of Mount Artxanda. Starting from the Guggenheim we start an ascent that in a few minutes leaves the city behind to enter another Bilbao, the green lung of its mountains and hills.
After crossing the Puente de la Salve we start the ascent. Passing through different recreational areas we stop to enjoy the views and try to understand the urban fabric, as well as interpret the native forest areas. Thus, we reached the top of Mount Artxanda, where some surprise awaits us.
Descent by funicular, a means of transport that dates back to 1915 in Bilbao. Don't worry about the ticket, we take care of paying for it.
A perfect plan whether you come as a couple, alone or with your family.

-We recommend that you bring comfortable and suitable walking shoes.
-If you want you can also bring a snack. Along the way we will find sources of drinking water where you can quench your thirst or fill your bottle.
-Max groups 15 pax. Because in addition to professionals some of us are also neighbors and we believe that the future of the neighborhood depends on taking care of it and respecting it. Because we do not want you to miss any of our explanations and because we believe that a close treatment will improve your experience during the tour.
-If you have a reusable bottle, we recommend that you take it with you. This will avoid the generation of waste from plastic bottles. In Bilbao there are more than 300 public sources with high quality drinking water that deserves to be valued.
